Fun Fabric Pennant Banner


Ok, I seriously had fun making my very first fabric pennant banner!

My daughter's teacher is having a surprise baby shower today at school and since I'm a room parent I am in charge of decorations. Perfect time to have fun and make a banner!


Baby Boy's nursery is decorated in shades of chocolates & browns & greens & blues. I chose to do an extra-long pennant banner filled with all kinds of different, fun fabrics!



Wouldn't this be fun hanging in a nursery or a playroom?



Or used for birthday parties and celebrations as baby grows up?



I love the modern, fresh fabrics so much! I actually think that this banner could be for boys or girls. That's why I'm making another like it for my girlie-girls!!



I've really missed being "crafty" & think this was the jumpstart I needed to get back to having fun and crafting new projects!!!


I really can't wait to make more of these!


I'm linking up with Kimba's DIY Day...

I made a similar banner for my little one's birthday, but never thought to use a banner in his bedroom! I love the idea and will definitely be using it.

I LOVE your banner! Can I ask where your fabric was from? I love the colors- it matches my living room. :)
